Animal tree song lyrics

Look.
Look.
Look.
Where? Where? Where? Look at the animals there, there, there.

Monkey.
Cat.
Lion, tiger, bear, bear, bear.

There is a monkey.
Can you see? There is a monkey up in that tree.

There is a cat.
Can you see? There is a cat next to that tree.

Look.
Look.
Look.
Where? Where? Where? Look at the animals there, there, there.

Monkey.
Cat.
Lion, tiger, bear, bear, bear.
There is a lion.
Can you see? There is a lion under that tree.

There is a tiger.
Can you see? There is a tiger behind that tree.

There is a bear.
Can you see? There is a bear in front of that tree.

About the Animal tree song

“Animal Tree” is a captivating song that takes children on a safari adventure, exploring various animals and their locations relative to a central tree. This playful tune encourages observation and curiosity, with its call-and-response structure prompting listeners to search for and identify different animals mentioned in the lyrics.

It’s an engaging way to introduce children to wildlife and basic prepositions, enhancing their language and cognitive skills.

What your child can learn from it

Through “Animal Tree”, children are introduced to various animal names and their spatial relationships, such as “up in,” “next to”, “under”, “behind” and “in front of” the tree. This helps them learn about wildlife while also expanding their vocabulary with prepositions of place, improving their understanding of language used to describe location.

The song also fosters imagination and observational skills, as children visualize the animals and their positions around the tree.

This imaginative journey not only enhances their cognitive development but also promotes a sense of wonder about the natural world. Additionally, the song’s structure and repetitive elements aid in memory retention and the practice of listening and response skills.

Bringing “Animal Tree” to life

To enrich the experience of “Animal Tree”, consider incorporating these interactive and educational activities:

  • Animal Spotting Game: Create a game where children have to find pictures of animals hidden around the classroom or home, mimicking the search for animals around the tree in the song. This can be a fun way to practice prepositions and animal recognition.
  • Craft Your Own Animal Tree: Engage children in an art project to create a large tree and add animals around it using drawings, stickers, or cutouts. This hands-on activity allows children to physically place animals in different locations relative to the tree, reinforcing their understanding of spatial concepts.
  • Animal Storytime: Use the animals from the song as characters in a story, encouraging children to come up with their own tales about the adventures of the monkey, cat, lion, tiger, and bear. This storytelling activity can enhance creativity, narrative skills, and language development.
